The sixth – and final – Sunday of construction went really well, despite the odd shower, and a bitter cold wind. All finished, apart from one piece which will hopefully be erected one evening this week. The tree looks very fine, with Ian and David G doing the honours with arguably the worst job of all – dressing the tree with 150 metres of coloured and flashing LED lighting! Baubles all in place. A quick tidy up with outstanding small displays, and finally our version of the Dancing Diggers, hanging nets of miniature lIghts in the silver birch trees in the square.
Behind the scenes, the Grotto crew have been working like fury helping Santa wrap presents, and making arrangements for his new grotto in the Falcon. David G has been chasing everyone up with their tasks for switch-on day with the benefit of his impressive and very daunting spreadsheet! Now all we need is good weather, and a good crown for next Saturday. A very pretty leaflet has been produced, and circulated very widely, so we should be sure of good coverage. See your there!
